I finally got to see an exhibit of plasticized bodies. It was fascinating and interesting. I learned quite a bit about bones and body tissue. More importantly, I gained a deeper understanding of the things that I knew already.

I recommend visiting one of these exhibits to anyone with an interest in anatomy. I've always loved anatomy (I'm a mechanical engineer after all and our bodies are mechanical masterpieces) and my yoga practice has fueled this interest even more.

No photographing allowed within the exhibit, so you will have to make due with me tickling the poster-body :)


  1. I went to this a few years ago and also found it fascinating. I can't help but wonder where all the bodies came from!

  2. Hi Michelle, there is a big controversy about these types of exhibits for this exact reason. I do not know if it's true or not, but rumor has it that the bodies are "not" all donations as the artist (or whatever you wanna call it) would like us to believe. The rumor goes, some of them are deceased homeless people from non-western countries. I was surprised by how short the people in this exhibit were, leading me to believe they are Asian... This is all speculation from my side though.

    Hope you're well!

  3. Simmm... Thanks for reading my blog. I am feeling very guilty about missing classes... just when I think I might be close to a breakthrough, something happens, and I have to miss a few days. Oh well. Like you said, we do what we must. One day it will happen. Hope you are well!!! Take care!
